Creepy Thailand Ad watch.

(click ads, via) Thai ad agencies consistently produce the creepiest ads in the world. Here, creepy severed hand/fingers are employed for Sanzer hand gel. We've already seen a very similar visual idea—microscopic germs made of creepy disembodied hands —by another Thai agency for a different hand sanitizer brand. Ad agency: Chuo Senko. Note: hand sanitizers have been proven not to work.

Was there any question of their working on viruses? Alcohol will kill bacteria, but researchers store viruses in alcohol to protect them.

Maybe there's something I don't know, but I'd have thought there's no way a "hand sanitizer" could prevent flu.

I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about. I just review ads. So, carry on.

Alcohol kills almost all bacteria, and some types of viruses such as the flu, cold, and HIV virus. Alcohol does not kill the Rabies virus. The effectiveness of alcohol in killing virus depends on the ratio of alcohol to water in the solution.

Whether or not using a hand santizer practically results in fewer incidents of a disease is an open question. Some studies have shown results, others have not. In hospitals frequent hand-washing with soap or alcohol is an absolute unquestioned requirement.

Personally I wouldn't let a doctor or nurse near me unless I witnesses them washing their hands - in something.

Can we talk about advertising now?
